Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.4.2 for UNIX Linux: Administration Training Course
The Veritas Infoscale Availability 7.4.2 for Unix Linux: Administration Training course discusses how to use InfoScale Availability to manage applications in a high availability environment and support for Cloud environments. The course is designed to enable you to gain the necessary fundamental and advanced skills that are required to manage a highly available application in a cluster. It also discusses how to deploy InfoScale Availability in the lab environment to practically implement a sample cluster design and deployment.
Training Course Objectives:
By the completion of this Linux training course, you will be able to:
- Describe how clustering is used to implement high availability in the data center environment.
- Describe VCS and cluster communication mechanisms.
- Create a cluster, and configure service groups and resources.
- Implement and verify failover and failback capability for application, storage, and network services.
- Configure and optimize cluster behavior.
- Protect data in a shared storage environment.
- Describe I/O fencing operations, and its implementation.
- Configure VCS to manage an Oracle database and other applications.
- Describe InfoScale support for Cloud Environments.
- Configure and manage VCS clusters on virtual machines in VMware environment.
- Implement Just in Time Availability for single node VCS cluster on virtual machine in a VMware environment.
